1974 Kawasaki Z1 with a fork from a ZX-10, widened swingarm and zx6  wheels (180 tire).  I think it would have looked even sweeter with similarly sized wire spoke wheels all while retaining the upgraded brakes.  That all being said this is a beautiful bike.

Good God. Impressive. It's been 40-50 and I'm not even willing to go wrench in the garage.

Me on my Yamaha XV920R.
Taken about 1995.
I still have the bike, but it's stripped down and in several boxes.

It was never a pretty bike but this is the friggin best looking Zephyr 750 I have ever seen.  Much better than butchering a 40 year old bike trying to make it look "cool".  They should have thrown these wheels on that Z1

Does anyone have any info at all on what this bike is?  I have to assume it's 100% custom.... but if anyone had details on who built it and where, or even just a name for this style bike.  I have wanted a motorcycle for years and was hoping to do my licensing and training when the weather gets better... and this is the best-looking-bike I have ever seen in my personal style....  so anything I could learn about it and how I could find something similar in looks would be amazing.

 

Cheers.

Well that's awkward.

 

I used the image to do a reverse image search through tinyeye.com but it had 0 results.  Clearly google was the way to go.  Sigh.

 

Thanks a ton for the link!
